This special issue of the Canadian Journal of Sociology, (eds. Stephanie Sodero and Nicholas Scott)on 'contentious mobilities’ investigates mobilities in the context of unequal power relations. Mobilities are contentious when they confront the systematic exclusion of others, advance unconventional mobile practices and destabilize existing power relations. We address an empirical gap, featuring Canada as a prolific and influential site for leading-edge research.
